Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

Saturated ruby color. Black cherry, black raspberry, smoky oak and tobacco on the nose. Fat, sweet and sappy; fully ripe black fruit flavors fill the mouth. Not a huge wine but lush and accessible. Even tannins are buried in fruit. Few Washington winemakers have thus far produced cabernet with texture so suave or tannins so fine.

About This Producer

Gary Figgins, owner-winemaker of this oldest winery in the Walla Walla Valley, turned his winemaking hobby into a career in 1977 after years of amateur experimentation in is cellar. He is respected for being entirely self-educated in winemaking and having an obsessive attention to detail, going so far as to choose specific logs for his barrel staves years in advance. Despite his overwhelming success, total production of his Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, blends, and Riesling remains limited.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
